I had the flu this week. Although I hated going through it and would have agreed to gain 50 pounds just to make it all stop...when all was said and done, I was six pounds lighter. At first, I thought I was down 9 pounds, but three came back on when I re-hydrated and ate.

Flu is very helpful for weight loss.

LOL at "Flu is very helpful for weight loss."

Reminds me of the scene from The Devil Wears Prada (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0458352/quotes)Emily: Andrea, my God! You look so chic.
Andy Sachs: Oh, thanks. You look so thin.
Emily: Really? It's for Paris, I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.

Seriously! I was horribly sick too a couple weeks ago, too. It was miserable. I'm still fighting it. But I sure can't complain about the loss!

Glad you're feeling better! :D
